Theodor de Bry (1528-1598)
16th century engraving of Native Americans after painting by Jacques Le Moyne Theodor de Bry (1528-1598) Voyages to America Frankfurt: 1591 Hand-colored copper plate engravings, after drawings by Jacques Le Moyne 12" x 9"; 23 ½" x 20" framed Theodore de Bry was born in Liege (Belgium) in 1528 to well-to-do Protestant parents. He lived in Liege until the 1560s, when he was forced to flee to Strasborg to avoid the religious persecution. To earn his living in Strasborg, de Bry opened a goldsmith shop and also worked as an engraver. In 1588, de Bry moved to Frankfurt, and it was at this point late in his life that de Bry turned his attention and considerable skill as an engraver toward illustrating and reprinting works concerning the New World of the Americas. De Bry’s landmark volume is a striking visual interpretation on 16th century Native American culture in the Southeast. Jacques Le Moyne traveled to La Florida, as the entire region was known, in 1562 with a French expedition to encourage colonization of the New World. Le Moyne lived in the Huguenot colony at Fort Caroline, compiling an extensive collection of drawings to document the daily life and ritual practices of the local Indians. The colony was destroyed by the Spaniards in 1865, but Le Moyne was able to escape with his drawings. Theodore DeBry completed these stunning engravings in Frankfurt in 1591. The images of the New World convey a strong sense of the mystery and exoticism that characterized early European notions about the New World and it’s native “savages.” These images, including scenes of hunting, farmin … [Click Below for Full Description]

LE MOYNE, Jacques (1533-1588) [De Bry Voyages: Florida]
Frankfurt: Johannes Wechel for Theodore de Bry, 1591. Small folio ( 325 x 235 mm). [5], [1 blank], 30 pp., 42 leaves, [17] pp., including final errata leaf. Two engraved titles, large folding engraved map of Florida, 42 fine half-page engravings after Jacques Le Moyne, each with letterpress captions (engraved title to text mounted and with a few restored tears, engraved title to engravings cropped at foot, some mostly marginal dampstaining and softening of paper, fol. xxiii creased, lap of seated queen on plate 37 scribbled over by a modest reader). Later blind-stamped calf to a 16th-century style. First edition, and an excellent copy of Part II of the de Bry Grands Voyages, containing Jacques Le Moyne's narrative of the second French colonial attempt in North America, the ill-fated expedition to Florida under Jean Ribault and René Goulaine de Laudonnière. First published in 1588 (de Laudonnière's own account had appeared in 1586), this is the first illustrated edition. Le Moyne, who appears to have been employed as court artist under Charles IX, accompanied this largely Huguenot expedition, undertaken in 1564 in hopes of establishing a permanent settlement in the New World, which finished in disaster: the good relations initially established with the Indian tribes inhabiting the territories around the settlement site at St. Johns soon soured, and a few members of the French party became disaffected and revolted against their leaders. The final coup de grace came when a Spanish force attacked Laudonniere's stronghold at Fort Caroline. In the end Le Moyne was one … [Click Below for Full Description]

But wicked or ignorant men learn even natural magic from demons... One of his longest chapters is on alchemy...

De Morgues, Jacques Le Moyne (d. 1587)
Frankfurt, 1591. THE FIRST MAP OF FLORIDA Copper-plate engraving: 151/8" x 183/8 References: Lloyd Arnold Brown, The World Encompassed (Baltimore, 1952), n. 233; Philip D. Burden, The Mapping of North America: A List of Printed Maps 1511-1670 (Rickmansworth, 1996), 101-102; M.B. Pritchard & H.M. Taliaferro, Degrees of Latitude: Mapping Colonial America (Williamsburg, 2002), 63-5. This is a pivotal early map of the Southeast, and the most extensive coastal delineation of any part of the American continent for nearly a generation. The author, Jacques Le Moyne, accompanied the French explorer Laudonnière on his ill-fated 1564 voyage to found a Huguenot colony in Florida. Le Moyne's task was to make surveys as well as to record visually the native customs and topography, but his project was curtailed in 1565 when the Spanish destroyed the French settlement at Fort Caroline. Le Moyne was among the few fortunate survivors who escaped. In 1591, his map was published in Theodore de Bry's Great Voyages, as part of the second installment of what eventually became the grandest set of illustrated travel narratives in the history of American colonization. The De Bry firm, situated in Frankfurt, ultimately published twenty-seven wildly successful installments of the Great Voyages over the course of almost half a century (1590-1634). Le Moyne's account remains one of the most historically significant and desirable of the Great Voyages, and this map is the most important individual item included in that celebrated early series of travel narratives. The map includes the peninsu … [Click Below for Full Description]
